Man made Sources of EMI

Man-made EMI Sources :-Man-made sources are by far the largest contributor to EMC problems

Some of these sources are intentional (eg radio transmitters), others are unintentional (eg interference from digital signals).

Their main characteristics are outlined in the examples below

Examples :-

  • Radio Transmitters
  • Digital Processing and Communications
  • Electroheat Applications
  • Power Conditioning and Transmission
  • Switching Transients
  • Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
  • Nuclear EMP
